    Looking for some help. I was reformatting an external drive (for use with time machine) and disk utility crashed while erasing the drive. When I remount the drive, it reports it capacity as on 35gb.

    Any suggestions as to how I get back my other 150gb?

    I've tried reformatting, repairing permissions and disk warrior, but it still only shows 35gb.

    What do you see when you go into Disk Utility and choose Partition?

    I figured it out .......

    I switched cases (from usb to fw) and for some odd reason decided I'd switch the drive jumper. Seagate drives have a configuration that differs from maxtor -- I realized I moved the jumper to limit the drive to 40gb.

    I'm a dumb ass in the morning.

    Thanks tho.
